I use this left hand DeSants IWB "deep tuck ?" for small of back with my G26 and extra mag. I am right handed, but by using a left hand holster in this way it positions the weapon for a right hand draw. Hides the weapon fairly good in a t-shirt unless I bend over.ctc123 said:Does anybody use the Galco Small of the Back holster?
If so any pics of used or any other brands of this type of holster?
SOB carry is not a great idea for daily carry. If the gun is directly over your spine and you have even a slip & fall that causes you to land on it, it can increase the amount of damage done. Back about 20 years ago, many police officers carried their handcuffs dead center on their spine, because they could reach them with both hands. Back injuries occurred and many depts issued policies requiring that they be placed anywhere else on the belt. If something as small as a handcuff case, mounted on a large, stiff, leather belt, can cause damage, imagine what a gun can do. And I can tell you from personal experience that spine damage at waist level is a very bad thing.
True. I have landed flat on my back three times in 44 years. I try to roll to a shoulder to minimize the impact, if I am able, but...I suppose that depends on where you go and what you do. I've been down a few times over the years, in various situations, and I've ended up flat on my back a couple of times. I've also had a number of close calls on wet or greasy floors that could've put me there. A spill on the floor of a grocery store that hasn't been marked or cleaned up yet is all it may take.
If I'm going to end up down, I'd rather flat on my back than on a shoulder, elbow, wrist, down stairs, or face down. I've done all of those and flat on my back is the only one that didn't lead to at least a sprain.
